Deltron 3030 - 'Event II'

Dan The Automator, Del The Funky Homosapien and Kid Koala get their famous pals on board

Deltron 3030 - 'Event II'

Album Info

  • Release Date: September 30, 2013
  • Label: Caroline/Bulk
7 / 10 It's been 13 long years since their sci-fi hip-hop tag-team debut, and the time Dan The Automator, Del The Funky Homosapien and Kid Koala didn't spend writing convoluted plotlines for this follow-up, they've used begging their mates to join in. Long-time associate Damon Albarn, Jamie Cullum, comedians The Lonely Island and even chef David Chang all help to make sure the wait was worthwhile. There is an admirable consistency to the production, and at its best 'Event II' is touched by greatness – see Zack De La Rocha's histrionics rubbing up against Del's laid-back verses on 'Melding Of The Minds'; or 'My Only Love', decorated by an unsettlingly brittle chorus from Emily Wells.
